BisNow's daily letter just dropped word on this development. I suspect it will be like every other Elan in Houston. Shall I wrap that up or will you have it here?

"Greystar purchased Skyline Apartments (2222 White Oak). The building will be demolished, and the firm will build a new Class-A property called Elan Heights on the 1.8-acre site. Greystar has worked with Woodland Heights Civil Association for 12 months to create a property that complements the area. Moody Rambin’s Chris Dray repped the buyer and Marcus & Millichap’s Juan Cuevas repped the seller."

Out with the old...


In with the new...

That's the old rendering, the new rendering was posted a few pages back; the Skyline Apartments are already in the process of being demolished.

Apparently they added a couple of levels of parking. Overall height is now ten floors. Colors are more drab, too.

The latest downtown map.

Get ready for more construction cranes downtown

The png posted by the Chron doesn't reproduce well...

And an article from DowntownHouston from last week...

It’s Good to be in Downtown Houston

"...Today, more than $1.39 billion in new Downtown construction projects are underway and another $2.58 billion in pre-development/design—nearly one-third of these projects being residential developments. Additionally, Houston continues to welcome waves of new businesses relocating offices to its central business district and with that, urban professionals also will see an additional 2.86 million square feet of office space being constructed, as well as eight new, modern and luxurious hotel high-rises dotting the city’s skyline. And who can overlook the success of two of Houston’s most beloved urban parks: Discovery Green and Market Square Park..."

The recladding for 800 Bell looks nice, but I don't really see why it's necessary. I'd rather them just convert it to residential and build a new office building somewhere else. It doesn't look like there is anything new on the latest Downtown map. There are a lot of projects planned to start in 3Q or 4Q 2014, so there should be a lot of activity in Downtown pretty soon!

Judging from what I've seen recently, the pace of announcements has slowed down significantly. I suspect we got ahead of ourselves; there are just so many projects in the pipeline that it will take a while just to whittle down the backlog.

I have always wondered about this, especially as someone in the Travel industry.

Houston is larger and wealthier than Atlanta, yet we have three W's, two Ritz-Carlton's, Four Seasons, Le Meridien, St. Regis, J.W. Marriott, Mandarin Oriental, the flagship U.S. Intercontinental, Grand Hyatt, etc.

I know you have a Four Seasons, and are getting a J.W.

The only reason I can imagine is the difference in the size of the convention & meetings industries between the two?

I think the convention part you mentioned is a big reason. Houston also has a st.regis.
